Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions – The Results

Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions – The Results Sadly like the World Cup, Barry and Paul’s will be pulling down our shutters as we bring our summer competition to a close. Fear not though, we’ll be back soon with our regular FPL predictions competition in plenty time for the start of the Premier League season, you can even win T-Shirts in that one, and sometimes we actually post them to you! Sometimes when life gets tough, quitting seems so easy. When you think you’ve done it all, motivation can seem in short supply. I know a man who faced that very dilemma. This time last year, one of our very own sat in his south coast home and made the decision to quit FPL. He was good at it, but the pleasure of taking all his mates money season after season was no longer enough; who ne...[Read More]

Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions Game 7

Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions Game 7 (Final) Welcome to Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions World Cup Final. It appears after all that, football shall not be making its way home. Given that Scotland is in reality the true birthplace of ‘soccer’ as we know it, that’s no great surprise, in which case football will probably never be going home. On to the winners! The scores keep dropping but that’s to be expected with a maximum 11pts on offer. As it was nobody got close to that score. Mahelmy came the ‘closest’ though; 4pts was enough to claim top spot this week. Second place with 2pts was current league leader Horse, stretching his lead at the top to 6pts, for Horse the real prize may just be coming home. Winner – Mahelmy – 4pts 2nd – Horse – 2pts The Overall Ta...[Read More]

Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions Game 6

Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions Game 6 (semis) Welcome to Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions Semi-finals. We’re into the final week of what has been a memorable World Cup on so many levels. Day one of the Quarter-finals began with France dispatching a Uruguay side weakened by the loss of Edison Cavani. You know when you replace a PSG forward with some bloke who used to play for Middlesbrough that you’re in trouble. Later that day we also said goodbye to Brazil, Neymar described it as ‘the saddest moment of his career’, diddums. England are in a World Cup Semi-final! Wowsers, like many I did not see this just a few short weeks ago, but a comfortable 2-0 win over Sweden on day two of the Quarter-finals and here we are. England’s opponents in the World Cup Semi-final (I have ...[Read More]

Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions Game 4

Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions Game 4 Welcome to Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions Game 4 – the round of 16. The Group stages ended with a 1-0 defeat for England’s reserves against Belgium’s reserves. Perhaps this was all part of the Gareth Southgate master plan; that is to finish second and secure a place in the ‘easier’ side of the draw, who knows, and quite frankly who cares. The daily rags have an uncanny knack of talking England up or down, depending on how the mood takes them. Talk of who we’ll meet in the Quarters? Jeez, we might not even make them, one game at a time eh lads. Its Columbia (tut!) next, lets hope we can win, if not there will be a certain FF247 writer who will no doubt revel in our demise. On to the winners so far! In Group stage 1 it w...[Read More]

Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions Game 2

Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions Game 2 Welcome to Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions Game 2. We know, we know, Game 1 hasn’t ended yet but it’s time for your Game 2 predictions already. We can’t even tell you the results of your Game 1 ones yet, such is the nature of the World Cup format, as one GW runs into another in quick succession. Trust us though, we have this in hand. Your GW1 results will be collated with your (yet predicted) GW2 & 3 ones and there will be a league table up prior to the knockout stages. Admin aside, it’s time to play again so get predicting for Game 2 please. The rules are as follows…. Below you will find the fixtures of the 2nd set of 16 group games.

Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions Game 1

Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions Game 1 Welcome to Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions Game 1. We’re back! We’ve only been gone a few short weeks but already it feels an age, thankfully not much has changed. We do have a whole bunch of lovely new members, so I’d like to first say a very warm welcome to each and every one of you. It’s usually very quiet on-site around this time of year, so it’s been nice to have some new ‘faces’ to interact with. Lets all enjoy the tranquillity while it lasts, the new season will be upon us in no time, but before then we have the small matter of a World Cup to enjoy! As the title suggests this is the World Cup Edition of the competition you all (well most of you) know and love. For our new members this is a simple predictions based comp...[Read More]

Barry and Paul’s Predictions – The Final Reckoning

Barry and Paul’s Predictions – The Final Reckoning Welcome to Barry and Paul’s Predictions – The Final Reckoning. GW38 brought the season to a close in typical GW38 style. The final game-week of the Premier League often throws ups some unusual final scorelines and this season was no different; a 9 goal thriller in Spurs last home game at Wembley, City scoring a solitary goal in their win at St Mary’s, and of course my beloved Newcastle putting 3 past Chelsea without reply – Happy days! What started as an informal and innocent comment on another random article, asking you what you thought the game-weeks scores would be that week, has turned into something of an FF247 staple article now! Careful what you say around here folks, it can often rob you of hours of your life! Tha...[Read More]

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW37

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW37 Welcome to Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW37. GW36 started badly for FPL managers and B&P predictors alike. Liverpool couldn’t manage to break down the not-so-mighty Stoke, and all those who had backed Salah to score (first) collectively moaned in unison. The most notable result of the game-week was Palace putting 5 past Leicester without reply. Literally nobody predicted that. I’m pretty sure nobody reads these intro’s but if you do, let me know what sort of things you would like more of next season, as lets face it, you probably all know the scores of the previous game-week without my blathering! GW36 RESULT This week’s big winner was my fellow Chuckle Brother Matt. I can’t even shout fix as the Boss-man (Init) did the number crunching on this...[Read More]

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW33

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW33 Welcome to Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW33. Every week I write this intro and wonder if anyone actually reads it. I know Init reads it, which is fortunate as last week I was awarding the previous weeks winner a t-shirt, sloppy on my part. It has also been brought to my attention that some of our winners are yet to receive their FF247 t-shirt; sloppy on someone else’s part (I’ll not name names (Rich) but I can’t be held responsible for my delivery boy). Whilst my fellow chuckle brother and I are not responsible for the receiving (or not receiving) of said t-shirts, my apologies non-the less. A 1-0 win for the Toon was surprisingly not my favourite result of the weekend. No, that honour goes to Burnley’s 2-1 win over West Brom. Not that I have anythi...[Read More]

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW32

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW32 Welcome to Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW32. It feels like GW31 was a long long time ago, so forgive me for being brief! The standout result was of course Liverpool’s 5-0 demolition of Watford, Mo Salah goes from strength to strength, if only Liverpool had played in the 3 o’clock kick-off so a few more would have got the first scorer correct! The only other really notable result was the Palace 0-2 win over Huddersfield which was a right kick in the teeth for anyone predicting success for the Terriers in either FPL or B&P’s (which is obviously way more important!). Just one winner this week and that was Leprechaun with 7pts; not bad for just 4 matches! AT, who is becoming a regular in the weekly leaderboard, took 2nd spot with a close 6pts and ma...[Read More]
